About us

At Clayton Park kindergarten we have a team of 3 qualified teachers and an unqualified teacher who provides cover during our breaks.  We also have a teacher aide who assists us during the week, and a playgroup coordinator who works two morings each week with our playgroup.  Our philosophy is to foster children’s interests and creativity, develop independence and life skills and to promote sustainable environmental practices.

 We encourage sustainable practices such as reduce, reuse and recycle.  We have a kindergarten “Care code” which reminds us to care for the environment and each other.  Gardening, composting and looking after the worm farm is part of our everyday experience.

At Clayton Park kindergarten we have a playgroup on Monday and Wednesday mornings.  This is open to children from birth until the time they begin at kindergarten.  Participation in playgroup supports children during the transition onto our roll.  An adult must stay with the child for the duration of playgroup. Children attending playgroup are welcome to be included in the kindergarten daily routine.

Clayton Park kindergarten has an ongoing reciprocal relationship with Clayton Park School.  Each week some of our older children visit the new entrants classroom.  The children in the new entrants classroom/s visit us on a weekly basis.  We are invited to participate in school activities.
